Lost sketchbook: Jackson Thursday November 22, 2007, 6 comments

Wax on Paper

About five years ago I found one of my old sketchbooks. I made some scans at the time, and today, while sorting files during the transfer of my data from my Powerbook to my new Macbook, I came across a few of them. This is my favourite. Red and green crayon wax on paper, circa 1985.

Reminds me of your somewhat disturbing Halloween Horror.

A little less of the green in that story though, huh.

Owing largely to the fact that I am completely red-green colourblind, I see immediately through your deception.

I am unmoved by this candid portrayal of my therapist’s ex-wife’s mailman engaged in conjugal relations with a shetland pony and three dwarves.

I thank you to keep your Pornographic Rorschach Tests to yourself.

Little people, not dwarves. Be sensitive, sheesh.

Commenting has ended for this post, but I'd still love to hear from you.
